Sponsor A Drive
Sponsoring a drive is a great way to reach out to the community and get others involved. You can sponsor a drive at school, work or anywhere else and help our Long Island neighbors with many daily necessities.
- Food Drive: Have a drive for non-perishable food items that can be distributed at our soup kitchens. Not sure what to ask people to donate? Ask for canned: soup, vegetables, fruit, and tuna fish. Pasta sauce, peanut butter and jelly or jams are always great items to add. Click here for an items list.
- Clothing: In the winter time warm clothes are always in demand. Have you thought about having a coat drive? What about sweaters, gloves, hats, and scarves? All of these items are sure to help keep our neighbors warm. We are always in need of jeans and t-shirts too. BE CREATIVE!!! Hold a drive for new socks or new underwear. Often times these pieces of clothing are overlooked but in great demand!
- Personal Care Items: Everyone needs a toothbrush and toothpaste, disposable razors and shaving cream, deodorant, soap and shampoo; hold a drive for these items and make someone’s day. Imagine how much diapers and formula cost! Hold a drive for baby items and highlight expensive items such as formula, diapers, and baby wipes. Click here for an items list.
